You should wait until you have stopped draining and then wait until a week has passed to go for a gentle swim in cool water.  But first, get clearance from your surgeon.

I recommend waiting until the entry spots are healed.

I recommend waiting until the entry spots are healed.  This is ususally two to three weeks following the procedure.

Your question is the time before you can swim. HUMMM best to ask your surgeon of record. In my patient I allow light activity, even swimming, at 4 to 5 days. BUT that is in my patients.
